Here's my reaction to Herxheimer's reaction:
"Up at Herk-Heimer Falls, where the great river rushes
And crashes down crags in great gurgling gushes,
The Herk-Heimer Sisters are using their brushes.
Those falls are just grand for tooth-brushing beneath
If you happen to be up that way with your teeth."
- Dr Seuss, The Sleep Book
